And I have less dropped passes than Finley, doesn't mean I have superior hands. I'm willing to bet all of the above (especially Gronkowski) have significantly more targets.


Depending on your definition of significantly, you would lose that bet.

29, 19, and 7 more targets than Finley.

In what order are these numbers? Witten was targeted 22 times on Sunday alone. Does the number 29 imply that he only received 7 targets otherwise? Perhaps I'm just confused.

Either way, as with any statistic alone, the full story isn't told. It's one thing to drop passes when there is still a lot of production. We all make mistakes but what's often most important is how we respond to those mistakes. It's another to drop a substantial number of passes in key situations in addition to producing very little (and getting paid a lot). But I forgot, Finley is soooo feared that he requires double coverage on every single play and makes everyone else's life as a receiver easy. Finley gets such great separation in the passing game, that he would take over a game if single covered. [sarcasm]

If I was the quarterback, I wouldn’t throw it to the guy who’s off rhythm right now, either. So I’ve got to get that trust back.


After the Saints game, Mike McCarthy showed him a video of him plucking the ball out of the air that Shawn posted earlier today. He's setup meetings with Aaron Rodgers for 30 minutes the day prior to the game. And here he's acknowledging his drops and lack of targets because of said drops. His position coach says he's catching nearly every single pass thrown to him during practice.

What. Gives?!?!

Zero! Run a quick script that changes all instances of any negative words to positive in any sentences that contain "Finley", he'll get 300 yards and 6 TDs on Sunday.

It would be great if the coaches could "get through to him". He is a great talent but he needs to use it every game.

More from the quote I threw up before.
Quote:
“It’s opportunity, getting trust back from A-Rod,” Finley said. “If I was the quarterback, I wouldn’t throw it to the guy who’s off rhythm right now, either. So I’ve got to get that trust back.”

Finley’s confidence has been lifted by Saturday night talks with Aaron Rodgers. “I’m doing it from here on out every Saturday,” Finley said. “The guy is touching the ball 100 percent of the time. You’ve got to have that trust. That 30-, 45-minute meeting, that shows a lot. And he just says, ‘How do you want the ball?’ I tell him, ‘It ain’t how I want it, you tell me what you want me to do.’”


Seriously, this kid just has to get going. I'm at a loss, unless his knee injury has never fully healed, I just don't get it.
